Dr Elizabeth's wisdom
"As a crossdresser, you need to crossdress regularly. It is like your therapy, and will be a huge stress reliever."
"During moments of intense stress, crossdressers can feel their dressing desires much more strongly than normal. These intense feelings can sometimes make crossdressers feel that they need to transition, when in reality all they need is to remove the source of intense stress."

- Because it is not natural
- Because it is against our book
- Because it exposes you to possible physical harm
- Because I will get rejected by my family
- Because crossdressing is sexist, since many crossdressers portray women as sluts or submissive. In other words, crossdressers portray women as less than men.
- Because crossdressing reflects modern ideology 's obsession with self-identity. People need to stop worrying about their individual goals and be more at one with the universe.
- Because I don't have money
- Because I don't have space
- Because I don't have time
- Because I look ugly as a femme
- Because I feel bad after crossdressing
- Because you need to accept gender norms to find someone to love you.
- Because crossdressing is kinky
